So Sad I Have To Laugh

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~Kahlil Gibran

You ever have things happen that are so frustrating and upsetting that you have to find time to laugh?

We have this:

Do you see the "flood watch until Friday 4 p.m." on there? Yeah, so not going to the fair on Friday either. Saturday will be nice, but will be an absolute ZOO. Last time I went on a Saturday, I was miserable. Hardly any room to move, or walk; long lines for rides, nowhere to sit.

DD cried herself to sleep last night.

I'm not sure what we'll do at this point. And it makes me terribly sad.

So ... I watched a few Geico commercials, because HA they always make me smile:

Though I have to admit this is one of my favorite commercials EVER:

What can you recommend to make me smile today?


You Are a Golden Delicious Apple

You have a glow to you, and you are naturally attractive. You know how to highlight your good points.

Beneath that shining exterior is a sensitive soul. You are more thin skinned that people realize.

You prefer others to be gentle with you. You need to be handled with care.

You may be fragile, but you're also tough deep down. You're firm enough to stand up for what you believe in.

Um .... 50/50 I guess. And I really hate golden delicious apples. They're mushy. Blech.

I feel your pain. I am supposed to CAMP friday night. In a tent. In "Heavy" rain.

I think I'll sleep in the car!

My word verification is "plain". Plain what?

I just don't understand what is going on with the weather. It's fall and we are expecting 103 today.

Think of the poor people who are putting on the fair. It just doesn't seem right. Poor animals too.

I guess I didn't make you smile, did I?

Chocolate and chick flicks always help me. Hope your day improves!

Can you go when they first open on Saturday? I would imagine, it won't be as crowded if you go in the afternoon.

re quiz: I'm golden delicious it is 50% accurate.

The rain is supposed to end on Friday, so I hope it does for you as well.

Awww, poor DD. I hope you find a solution that makes you both happy.

You Are a Gala Apple
You are cute and sweet. It's hard for people to resist your simple charms.
You are a hybrid of a couple different influences. And you change as you're life goes on.
You are sassy and fresh. You have a distinct personality, but you are never too over the top.
You are the kind of friend that stands the test of time. You are true to those you love, even as times and relationships change.

I like it, not sure how correct it is, but I like it. And funny enough Gala apples are one of my favorites.

Hugs re the weather!!!

The woodchucks are funny but the little pig going "whee whee whee" all the way home is still my favorite. :)

Why does it have to happen like that? After such a long dry summer of begging for rain when you FINALLY don't want rain we get dumped on. I'm so sorry.

Great commercials!
